3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jan 2013 - slightly cold bottle. Not much head surprisingly. The typical rich pungent caramel flavour associated with De Molen beers. Tangerine as well. A bit sharp. Frothy in the mouth. Overall, this is not bad but the sharpness lets it down.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 1 year after bottling. Clear golden to amber color, medium off-white head. Aroma has some caramel malt, bit fruitiness from the hop and lots of spicyness from the yeast. Slight hint of pineapple. Piney and fruity bitterness together with some maltiness in taste. Quite dry, but the fruity bitterness and some caramel still give a slight sweet sensation. Complex. Good stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light orange, very hazy with a big white foam head.
It is a wheat beer with huge amounts of hop.
Hop flavours are melted with wheat aromas but reductive, rubber-like and phenolic off flavours are not very pleasant.
The overall sensation is a "could be very nice" beer but "something wrong" brew finally.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cerveza de color ambarino, con una espuma blanca. Es muy gaseada, con mucha burbuja, pero luego en el paladar no se percibe que tenga tanto gas como el que aparenta. Olor fresco y cítrico. El sabor el también algo cítrico al principio, pero el sabor malteado va ganando presencia dando paso a un ligero amargor.

Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is red fruit, citrus and some barnyard. Flavour is malt and fruity with a nice bitter finish and some funkiness. Not your typical saison but not a bad interpretation.
